KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Daniel C. Irwin pleaded guilty in federal court on Thursday to one count of distributing child pornography. The 38-year-old Kansas City man was indicted on eight charges in August of 2014 when he was a vice president of accounting at State Street, a financial firm.
With his plea, Irwin admitted that he sent video of child pornography to an undercover Kansas City, Mo., detective in July of 2014 and again in August. He tried to give the undercover detective incest pornography in exchange for the opportunity to have sex with the detective’s daughters, whom he believed were 12 and 16.
Irwin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in federal prison without parole, and up to 20 years. His sentencing hearing will be scheduled after the United States Probation Office investigates the case. Irwin is now in the custody of U.S. Marshals.
